An imaginary history of the possible saving and hiding of the contents of the ancient Library of Alexandria from its founding to its destruction.

The city of Alexandria was established by Alexander the Great in April of 334 BCE. As part of its founding Alexander stipulated that a library be established that would accumulate the great books of the world. The library was established and began its work. For the next 1000 years it existed. It was burned three times: once by Julius Caesar in 47 BCE; once by Christian Riots in 415 CE; and once by the Arab conquerors in 645 CE. The scholars of the academic world have long pined for the lost documents which were all considered to have been destroyed in the three fires. This novel asserts that the crème of the documents were not destroyed, but in fact saved and stored in a desert hideout, waiting to be found.

 

It is the authors postulate that this could have happened, and they weave an entertaining tale, taking place across the centuries into the present day. It is their concept that much of the Great Library at Alexandria exists today, waiting to be discovered......and it could be true!
